ISO 22000:2005 is the first international Quality Management and Food Safety System that replaces HACCP, in food supply chain and is valid for all kind of food enterprises and organisms that participate in the food supply chain, handling all potential dangers of foods safety.

IFS and BRC Food Safety and Quality Management Systems, are more specialised, detailed and demanding standards than that of  ISO 22000, and they are applied mainly in enterprises that are interested to export their products in the United Kingdom, America and in other European countries that follow and require from their suppliers implementation of the specific Quality Systems. Our company has the required experience in IFS and BRC food safety systems, in their preparation, as well as in their implementation in food industry. Also, the WHO-FAO HACCP System Codex Alimentarius, sets the basic parameters for the correct implementation of Safety and Quality in terms of preparation, production ,package, storage, distribution of foods. Codex Alimentarius certificate is not enough in most authorities, however constitutes a solid proof of real interest of small enterprise that is related with the Chain of Foods, for the observation of Equitable Rules of Practical Safety of Foods, as HACCP.
